Another Way to access the Va Library

My Experience having more time with the daisy function in the Brailliant, especially accessing the Vision rare

My Most Interesting Device for 2023

I think it has to be the SensePlayer OCR ET.

FM Radio, Smart Keyboard to my iPhone, web radio, podcasts, daisy books, stopwatch etc.
